A few ideas I've been working on.

Hi everyone!

Today is day-one on FTE for me, and I wanted to see who out there has been working at fun and unique mods for their F150's. I've had mine since May '07 and have been researching a few mods I'd like to do.
I got a quote on some custom interior lighting to be installed in the air vents and a couple to shine down on the center console area. I found the interior to be really dark at night, so I got the idea from my buddy's GTi to have overhead LED lights put in to cast a dim but effective light on the console area. The LED's in the vents are just for fun, but I think it will look cool. I got a quote from a shop in town of about 350.00 to do all of it.

Next I talked to an auto interiors shop in Oswego that said he could redo my headrests, and have them custom embroidered for about 300.00. I have a screw, so I thought that wasn't too bad for 4 headrests.

I'm working on the exhaust thing right now. I didn't think I was that picky, but I'm not sure what way to go. I had a Magnaflow on an Avalanche before getting my ford, and I liked it, but the Roush system sounds really good.

Just some thoughts, I figure, if I'm doing stuff like this maybe someone else has some ideas too.

Thanks!

Welcome Brick76

I have an 06 F150 SCREW, but all my mod money is going into my 01 F250 Diesel. I'd like to see what your truck looks like after every thing is done...

Dave.
